In two recent New Jersey cases, Padilla v. Avanti Builders, Esx-L-9046-05, and De Assis v. Kara Homes, Hud-L-2310-06, undocumented workers are seeking various economic and noneconomic remedies for personal injuries that resulted on the job with building contractors. Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Hoffman Plastic Compounds, Inc. v. National Labor Relations Board, 535 U.S. 137 (2002), litigants have battled over the extent to which undocumented workers — immigrants who do not have proper authorization to work in the United States — are entitled to remedies under tort, labor and employment laws when they nevertheless obtain employment.
